What You'll Get
Airplanes combine the speed of a cheetah, the grace of a gazelle, and the flying ability of a cheetah and gazelle strapped to a jetpack. Soar like predator and prey partners with today's Groupon: for $199, you get an aerobatic afterburner flight with a beverage and souvenir T-shirt from Sky Combat Ace (a $529 value).
The experienced pilots at Sky Combat Ace rocket with passengers at more than 200 mph above a spinning horizon in Extra 330LC aerobatic airplanes. Afterburner flight-package guests receive complimentary shuttle service from their choice of major Las Vegas Strip hotel to a private, 7,000-square-foot aircraft hangar and lounge at Henderson Executive Airport (a $499 value) for an adventure of exhilarating g-forces and aerial maneuvers, including rolls, spins, loops, and celebratory fist-pumps. While in the air for the up-to-25-minute cloud-jaunt, customers will experience first-hand the airshow and dogfighting maneuvers learned during the preceding 15-minute briefing. After the excursion, pilots deliver guests back to the airport to explore the hangar's amenities and aviation museum for pathways to dirigible-building laboratories.
Fliers enjoy one drink (a $10 value) and receive a commemorative T-shirt (a $20 value) to preserve memories of flying free until Earth is finally declared a gravity-free zone. Call ahead to schedule your flight experience.

About Sky Combat Ace
Sky Combat Ace gives customers the thrill of a lifetime by pairing them with real fighter pilots for adrenaline-filled flight experiences that range from a full-motion flight simulation to an aerial dogfight where they man the controls of a real Extra 330LC or Texan T6 warcraft. All skybound guests don parachutes prior to takeoff, and pilots maintain constant communication with them during the flight—checking in to make sure they're relaxed, comfortable, and aren't aging prematurely due to g-forces. After touching back down, guests can calm their racing hearts with a stroll through the SCA Heritage Museum.
